Why stay here ...

Set in a quiet, simple and spacious location, Stover Club Site lies next to a beautiful country park on the edge of Dartmoor. If you crave a tranquil break and a wealth of lovely scenic walks, this is the ideal caravan site for your holiday. The Stover Park itself offers a variety of walks - you can choose secure expeditions guided by the Park staff or if you fancy something more challenging the wilder terrains of Dartmoor nearby are waiting to be discovered.

Visitors to Stover Club Site can enjoy the other aspects of Dartmoor by following the nature trail through a lovely valley to see Becky Falls. You can also opt for a leisurely drive to Canonteign for another country park well worth visiting as well as a host of delightful waterfalls. There is also a memorable Heritage Trail near the caravan park called the Templer Way; it runs from Haytor right through to the sea at Shaldon.

Less than a mile away is Trago Mills Family shopping and Leisure Park which includes super karts, trawler boats, steam and model railways plus an interactive animal enclosure so there is something for everyone nearby.

Digital TV signal booster in operation (no lead required).

Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

Walking notes:

Dartmoor National Park is the largest and wildest area of open country in Southern England, with over 368 square miles of moorland, forest and woodland. Stover Country Park is adjacent to the site, via a public footpath to the rear of the site and along a disused railway track. The park has a lake, walking routes, nature centre, aerial walkway and is great for dogs.

Peace and Quite

If you want to rest and relax amoungst the trees and parkland, with a nice golf club next to the site, a dense forest and huge lake 200 yards away with an abundance of wildlife, come to Stover It is a clean well maintained site, all pitches EHU, but no toilet or shower block, but who wants these when most modern caravans have been fiited out with showers and toilets. If this is what you're looking for, then this is the place for you - nice friendly Kath to greet you and her husband warden to help you settle in. Newton Abbot is just 4 miles away. Trago mills is 2 miles away and for caravan spares a dealer 'Highbridge Caravans' is close enough to walk to. Leave refreshed - we did 4 times this year!¬

An Ok Site

Having been members for over 26 years we've stayed on fair few of the clubs sites. I wouldn't say for us this is a returnable site...mainly because of the road noise which is why I've rated three for peace and quiet, if you are going here to relax and re-charge the road noise is a nuisance, and so is the Park noise, the Park is a busy place for families so you a hear a lot of people calling children and dogs etc. the Park is a lot smaller than expected, we were looking forward to maybe a Pembroke type park or like Cirencester where could walk among the trees and explore. We loved watching the cheeky squirrels and rabbits inches from our feet on site, and the call of the owls at night. A friendly clean site, wardens do their thing well.

Still a superb site

Stopped here again for a few days on the way back from Wales and I am pleased to say that the wardens are keeping the place as good as ever. Extremely helpful on check in when owing to an error on the club system I had two bookings for the same days. No trouble to sort and resolve all in a friendly and helpful. Sadly for members, this is the wardens final year as they are retiring, so my thanks to them for all the great years they have given the club. The site has a very nice dog walk beside a river, but this is surpassed by Stover Park which is located next to the site. Easy access on a wide footpath from the site, just enter the gate by the bus stop. The pitches nearest the road could be noisy, but overall the site is very quiet and tranquil.

Little Gem

We stopped over for just a couple nights mid week in August and were surprised how peaceful the site was. An ideal location for the beautiful Stover Country Park (just two minute walk away) and an ideal location for exploring Dartmoor and the Coastline. Fantastic site if you're after somewhere quiet and enjoy walking and nature. Simple, clean, well managed site with friendly helpful staff - perfect for a chance to wind down from the stresses of the day job!

Surrounded by roads But a nature lovers paradise.

After two and a half years of ill health and a necessary lifestyle change, I just wanted to say how much this caravan site has aided my recovery. It has well presented pitches and relaxed atmosphere, wildlife conscious site wardens who go out of their way to be helpful, sometimes in their own time. and a friendly clientele. We regularly see Tawny Owls, foxes, woodpeckers, tree creepers, Goldcrests, to name just a few. The best evening walk ( in our opinion ) on the site network. Nature is so important to our well being as it can make our lives richer. It has certainly been a wonderful healer for my husband and I. Denise.
